Obituary

Captain Jeffrey Reid Campbell, USN (ret) completed his work on this earth and went to be with his Lord on December 24, 2018 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

Jeff was born in Dallas on May 23, 1955. After two years of broadcasting, he enlisted in the Navy and spent the next 24 years in service to our country as a distinguished helicopter pilot, test pilot, and Chief Information Officer at the Pentagon. Jeff delayed retirement after 9/11 to assist in the re-building of the information technology infrastructure critical to Navy communications.

At his core, Jeff had a contagious enthusiasm for learning, especially in the areas of science and technology. He loved nothing better than to have an opportunity to pass on to others something he had learned.

After retiring from the Navy, Jeff was hired to head various programs for Lockheed Martin. The Air Force Personnel Program brought him to San Antonio which he quickly began to love and call home. In 2014, Jeff and business partner, Mark Paulson, started a drone consulting firm which continues today. He believed in giving back to his community and volunteered in several organizations, including service as Vice President of the Snack Pack 4 Kids Board.

Jeff is survived by his wife, Connie Campbell; his son, Tyler Campbell, his wife, Sarah; grandson, Paxton Campbell; his mother, Barbara Campbell, in addition to multiple siblings, cousins, and step-children. His service to others, patience, determination, and big smile will be truly missed.
